Most bicycle accidents are attributed to a motor vehicle driver error or negligence. Common examples of such accidents/negligence include:
- Failure to yield right of way
- Failure to check for cyclists before opening a door (dooring)
- Failure to check for cyclists before making a turn at an intersection
- Failure to stop at a STOP sign
- Failure to stop at a red light
- Vehicle intrusion into the bike lane
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Poorly designed or maintained roadways
- Dimly lit conditions
Although often ignored by vehicle drivers, bicycle drivers have the same rights as drivers of motor vehicles, and Canada embraces bicycles as a healthy and green way of commuting.
PW Lawyers are here to protect cyclists and reinforce their coexistence with motor vehicles on the road. If you or a loved one have experienced a bicycling related injury, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information and help.
It is vital that you wear a helmet when riding a bicycle, and DO NOT ride your bike where it is strictly prohibited (ex. The Highway)
